Tue, Jul 11, 2017, 09:55 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

July 11, Colombo: An army brigadier who had served as a security advisor at the Sri Lankan Embassy in Washington DC has disappeared after this tenure ended at the embassy, a local media report said.

The Sri Lankan Army has reportedly said that it believes the officer attached to the Gajabaa Regiment during the former regime is hiding in the US, avoiding his return to Sri Lanka.

The officer has been appointed as a security adviser to the Embassy in Washington in December 2014. His term has ended last year and he was due to report back to the Sri Lanka Army after his term of office ended.

According to the report the Foreign Affairs Ministry has requested the assistance of Interpol to have the brigadier arrested for vacating the post without obtaining leave.
